Not In Jersey: Sukkot Decorations Sukkot Decorations - Not In Jersey

Sukkot Decorations

Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Over the past week, we were celebrating Sukkot. For the past few years, I have shared here on my blog about our celebration of the Sukkot holiday. I have shared pictures of us building our Sukkah each year as well. This year, I did not take pictures of the building process as I have done in the past, because our Sukkah is still the same! Instead, here are a few photos of the decorations, some of which were new this year.

These welcome signs are on our outside wall, and the lower left decoration was made by Simon this year.

Gabbie and Simon made pumpkin centerpieces.

This mobile was made by Simon this year.

Also new this year are these Mosquito Repellent Lanterns – the balls hanging from the ceiling – which I received from PIC Pest Free Living earlier this year (review here – and stay tuned because I will be having a giveaway with more of their products very soon!)

Simon colored the picture on the left – which matches with one Gabbie made many years ago!

Simon also colored the happy etrog on the left, and on the right is a special copy of a poster made by Naama Henkin, a woman who, along with her husband Eitam, was killed last week in Israel by terrorists. You can get a copy of this print here and learn more about what happened here.

The holiday ended with a large celebration that takes place every year to commemorate finishing the reading of the Torah and starting again from the beginning. This is the flag that Simon made to dance with at the celebration!

Now, with the seasonal holidays over, things will be less busy around here and my blog posts will be more often once again!
